Default Cant get into the BIOS setup screen :S - 06-18-2009, 08:54 AM

Hey folks,

I set my Mini 9 up to not show the dell splash screen and to ask for a hard drive password but now when I boot up and try and press Fn F2 it doesnt seem to take, or Im not quick enough :S

Any ideas folks on this one?

Try "2" instead of "Fn F2".

When I did this, it took me many tries to get in there. Try holding down the 2 key. Taught me to not disable the splash screen!
